Abstract

Ecuador experienced moderate economic growth during the 2000s. The economy suffered a mild recession during the international crisis of 2008, but returned to pre-recession GDP per capita level in 2010. Most labour market indicators improved over the period. The only indicator that worsened was the employment structure by occupational position. Most labour market indicators were affected negatively by the international crisis but recovered their pre-crisis levels by 2012. The only exception was labour earnings for some employment categories.
